On Display in the Terryberry Gallery
FEBRUARY – MARCH 2015
By focusing on the expressive qualities of paint, Gort and Towner hope this exhibit creates experiences for visitors, inviting them to step inside the splashes of color to engage with the art.
“I describe my work as a complex, colorful journey into nature.
As an abstract expressionist I use the intuitive side of representing nature by choosing organic materials such as the ancient medium of encaustic wax
and oil paint. I creatively incorporate objects such as metals, woods and
other various materials which allow me to mix my media
and create small to large scale paintings.”
– Christine Towner –
“My desire is to show the unique and expressive qualities of paint,
both as a means to express something else,
and also as an expression of paint itself”
– Michele Renee Gort –
About Encaustic Art
Many of the works currently on display in the Terryberry Gallery are stunning examples of encaustic art.
The technique dates back to 5th Century Greece. A hot process, encaustic art uses beeswax, oil pigments and varnish in a molten form to create a textured piece of art.
